    8 pages in, I have townreads on Rodemy, Kpaca and gooLagoon.
    Rodemy: he wouldn’t have backtracked on his gambit as mafia.
    Kpaca: he’s asking the right questions. Sadly in his typical Kpaca way where he doesn’t share what the answers do to his reads. Town for sure if terry is mafia.
    gooLagoon: gutread.


    What about Ampharos? Do you have a take there?

    Town or with Fulcrum. Probably town.

    How did you feel about Fukcrum, before their flip, obviously?

    I only started reading beyond page 8 or so after her flip.

    I’m going to try to get another big chunk of the game read today.

    I’ve screwed this up before, just gonna go for it this time. What did you do last night?

    I like Tom, tubba. There is a read. He is super solvey and looking for teams and partners. Very town.


    I have a headache. This game and all the multiple party talks is frustrating.


    Why are you concerned about me getting back in this *****?



    I need to start getting off the fence, you are a read that I’m trying to firm up. I want more from you to help me do that. If you are demotivated or whatever you’re not going to be engaged and providing content for me to get a handle on you.

    Then again the wording is ominous as **** with the “your worries will be lessened” nonsense


    I took it as a bulletproof vest or something. I guess it’s not clear, but an upgrade would have to be good/beneficial? Osie’s not a monster.
    It’s probably a town ability, seems the best gameplay wise. Town has to guess if it’s going to town or scum, scum would just keep it to themselves.
    I was leaning Last as town, the ability seems town. Longwindedly agree with Terraine on not seeing a mafia lean based on the wording, some gameplay assumptions and my lean on Last.

    @Rhand
    I asked you earlier about your top town reads, I’d like them when you get a chance.


    @Tom
    The only way Tom Riddle makes sense is if there’s multiples, or at the very least a way to make more. The win condition makes no sense otherwise. There is no possible game state for one player to be left alive? If Wisp was mafia, they would win in F2 before Riddle triggered?

    @Rod
    Tell me about one of your reads, let’s get you back in this *****.

    The push on me is beyond lazy, think Sloth is the worst of them. Pretty confident Amy is just wrong town.


    I went into my Fulcrum read. Last was town because they wouldn’t have town read me as scum, and they didn’t take opportunistic shots to bury anyone.
    Konan looked bad, with the whole Tom thing and ending up on Tom in spite of it looked super scummy. Sloth claims he’s toning it down this game, but the solving is nonexistent and just feels like he’s playing a reactive game. Amy was just behind Fulcrum for me and for similar reasons. They feel like they’re in the driver’s seat for Town. Poison looked scummy by dint of doing nothing, Rhand is posting more but I’m still waiting for something there, particularly your town reads?ZDS had poor cases, the Rod push stands out as particularly silly to me. Just felt like posts that constantly circled a topic instead of going in at it. The null group was pretty self explanatory, but with the amount of action, things will start to resolve one way or the other with them. Same goes with the forgettables.

    Townsfolk, if I’m being read for having consensus reads, look at who isn’t for sharing those reads. Somebody shoving on me is scum.
    Have fun!

    When you come back, finish this sentence "playing reactively is scummy because ___________________"

    Re: Last: Why would he need to take opportunistic shots? It was t/t contended wagons. Why does he need to lead/stand when it's being done for him.

    Assuming you weren't poisoned?



    Playing reactively is scummy because you can hide your alignment easier. You can push with the flow, and can avoid making statements that are hard to walk back from. I should clarify that I don’t think all reactive playing is scummy, it can serve a purpose for both alignments. It feels like you are using it to hide your bright shining self, as opposed to trying to trap a scum read.


    I will concede your point on Last, I didn’t think about it like that. I just saw them keeping their reads fluid but not in a “looking for a place to happen” kind of way.

    I am having fun, and I have avoided poisoning, alcohol and otherwise.

    It’s my country’s birthday, and I will be continuing to day drink and set things on fire. I will check in when I can but my lucidity/ambition may be waning.
    That said, I should be able to take some questions.


    @Rod
    Amy not being dead Day 2 means nothing, especially with Fulcrum dying Night 1. Get out of here with that weak *****. If you’re Town I need to see savant solving Rod, not Jackson Pollock Rod.

    @Fulcrum, @WMU
    Fulcrum is my top town read because they are doing the things I want a town leader to do. They are building a town core, pushing reads and reassessing as info comes in. I’ve only played one other game with fulcrum to my knowledge but the tonal difference between this game and the last is rather apparent. That game Fulcrum felt like they were hunting for a place to strike, more serious and aggressive. This game seems to be a fulcrum trying to figure things out, with a friendlier, less serious vibe.

    WMU, the read is based on post count to an extent, but also on the content of those posts. By constantly “playing catch-up” it allows you to post without saying anything. With the amount of activity in this game, you should have some opinions, even weak ones.

    Sloth is placed with a question mark, based largely on meta tone from our last games. I expect the things I’m seeing from Fulcrum to be what I see from Sloth. The more I think about the Sloth/Rod situation the worse it makes him look to me. The initial push was ok as a way to try and figure Rod out, but I think he dropped it too easily and not because he was convinced but because it was becoming a more difficult path to push down.


    Caveat to all of the above, I’ve been offline for a little over 24 hours, and am now catching up (winks at xxXWakeMeUpXxx).

    Right, so you believed that you could probably find mafia in the people opportunistucally pushing on tom. And at the same time, you decided you needed to stop more people from pushing on tom for some reason, without having even caught up enough to know if the pressure had changed Tom's behavior. You're saying you deliberately sabotaged your idea for scumhunting (by giving advice to, Tubba, the person you thought most likely to be the scum pushing tom) and you did it because you wanted to be on the right side of this when we eventually figured out tom isn't mafia. Did I get that right?

    If there's any doubt here, friends, please look and see how Konan just assumed tom was town in all of this.

    Vote: Konan

    ------

    Last, I'm not sold on ZDS's defense being towny, beyond the general chill vibe from it.
    No, in fact I'm curious how you strung up that narrative to begin with. As I said before I already saw that tom had stopped his gif posting before making such a post. So, I will give you the benefit of the doubt and just assume you missed that part. What advice exactly was I giving Tubba? If tom was continuing with his fake posting resection than yes I would've waited, but he stopped. What I was saying in the post was showing people how scum can easily fake a read on tom (like Tubba) there was no advice to be given.
    So no, you didn't get that correct. I also did not assume tom was town that is a baseless assumption that you just tacted on to fit your narrative.


    Why am I scum faking a read on Tom? What was my (fake) read on Tom?
    If I’m scum with a fake read on Tom, are you not claiming Tom is town?

    Im more or less happy with my explanations for the times they are given

    @tubba
    What do you like?

    Do either of you have actual questions or just want me to go back and translate myself?

    I’d agree with Fulcrum, and Last’s positioning. Not sure about Jack yet, what’s your take there?

    Why is Terraine so low? I’d place them in the middle grouping myself.


    I think I got the rough gist of the gifs, just some clarity and something harder to walk back from would be nice.

    @Sloth
    I would say it was probably all the votes on him when Axle claimed that made me think the pressure helped resolve him. Smile


    @Tom
    Now that you’re talking, can you give some context to your readslist? I kinda like some of it but I want you to say how you got there.
